This application is entitled to the benefit of provisional application No. 60/671,671 filed on Apr. 15, 2005, the specification of which is incorporated herein by reference.
The present invention relates to a backpack designed particularly for spectator events where adequate seating may not be available.
When attending certain events, such as a child's athletic contest, a spectator must often transport multiple items such as beverage containers, food items, clothing and similar accessories. Additionally, because the seating at such events is often inadequate, a temporary chair may also be necessary. Transporting these items to and from a spectator event is always cumbersome and inconvenient. Accordingly, there is currently a need for a device that assists a user with transporting multiple items to a sporting event. The present invention addresses this problem by providing a uniquely designed backpack having a portable stool detachably connected thereto.
The present invention relates to a sports backpack including a hollow bag member with a pair of shoulder straps on the front surface thereof for securing the bag member to a user's back. The bag member includes several storage compartments that are accessible with zippers. Furthermore, the bag member includes a plurality of horizontally aligned male snap members on the rear surface thereof. An accompanying collapsible stool includes an attachment strip with mating female snap members thereon for fastening the stool to the bag member.
It is therefore an object of the present invention to provide a sports backpack that allows a user to transport multiple accessories to a spectator event.
It is another object of the present invention to provide a sports backpack having a detachable stool secured thereto for providing a user with temporary seating.
Other objects, features, and advantages of the present invention will become readily apparent from the following detailed description of the preferred embodiment when considered with the attached drawings and the appended claims.
The present invention relates to a sports backpack. The device comprises a hollow bag member 1 having a front surface 2, a rear surface 3, two opposing sides 4, an upper end 5 and a lower end. The bag member includes multiple zippers 6 that each provide access to an interior storage compartment.
On the front surface are a pair of padded shoulder straps 7 for securing the bag member to a user's back. On each side of the bag member is a cylindrical beverage container receptacle 8 with an enclosing flap 9 adjacent thereto. The flap includes a hook and loop fastener 10 on a side thereof for adhering to a mating fastener 11 on the receptacle exterior to secure a beverage container therein.
On the rear surface of the bag member are a plurality of horizontally aligned male snaps. The device also includes a collapsible stool 12 having a seat member 13 with support legs 14 pivotally attached to the underside thereof. The legs are secured with conventional hardware that locks the legs in a collapsed or deployed configuration. A channel 15 is formed on an edge of the seat member that slidably receives an attachment strip 16. The attachment strip includes a plurality of female snap members 17 for mating engagement with the male snap members on the bag member to secure the stool thereto.
The above described device is not limited to the exact details of construction and enumeration of parts provided herein. Furthermore, the size, shape and materials of construction of the various components can be varied.
Although there has been shown and described the preferred embodiment of the present invention, it will be readily apparent to those skilled in the art that modifications may be made thereto which do not exceed the scope of the appended claims. Therefore, the scope of the invention is only to be limited by the following claims.
